Unit 3: Developing Rubrics
Student teachers develop and apply knowledge-and performance-based rubrics that allow teachers to assess students’ understanding of key subject matter concepts, skills, and processes. (KD.2.b)
Lecture discusses good and poor rubric design.
Duration: Total of 3 notional hours – 1 hour computer practical and 2 hour self-study (preferably at a computer).
Notes to Lecturer: You will need to prepare a one-hour lecture that provides participants with an overview of ‘rubrics’ (see content below for ideas). Participants should develop an understanding of the role rubrics play as an assessment tool as well as when and how they should be used. On completion of the lecture, participants should not only be able to recognise the difference between low and high quality rubrics but also feel adequately prepared to begin creating rubrics in the next unit.
